I wanted to do a late afternoon shoot in a pine forest - so I kind of roped my newly turned 15 year old daughter to model for me. This was just for fun!

Really nice Lisa. Your daughter is very pretty, you must be proud of her. All of these images are great, but the B&W really stands out to me. Stunning. I have been watching your work and hopefully I can learn from you for when my grand daughter is a little older. You never disappoint.
regards
Ed

She doesn't look particularly excited to be involved. How often do you rope her into modeling?

Pictures are awesome, like usual.

tsaphoto, if I may, I'll respond to your comment about her daughter not looking excited about being involved, as she sometimes gets that comment. Basically, Lisa is getting exactly the look/expression that she wants from Calista. That's her style. A lot of people absolutely love it, but it's not for everyone. The thing about having this expression, for me anyway, is that the face is relaxed and I think you really capture the beauty of her face this way.

As a wedding photographer, I'm shooting a bride's happiest days, and it's always a challenge for them to give me this expression -- and frankly, not everyone can do it, as for some the blank expression comes across as dull. Calista delivers, though.

By the way, Lisa, saw these on your FB page. No. 4 is interesting, as you mentioned a bit mysterious, with her looking away. No faves for me, though. I love them all the same, all for different reasons. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with you, Number 5 and the B&W one captures the "look" you mention perfectly. I notice that Lisa has the knack of getting this expression from many of her models. It does appeal to me. But I must add, it's really not fair, Lisa has 9 more like this waiting in the wings at home.

Beautiful daughter and beautiful photos . . . . as usual!!!!!!!!!!!

The B/W image has a mysterious feel to it, at least for me.

That's not what I'm talking about. The expression in the photos matches what we usually see from LH stylistically. The first picture, though, has something extra - a glint of irritation in the eyes and posture usually lacking. If that's intentional, great work. I love your work and certainly believe you're capable of pulling a variety of emotions from your subjects.

Maybe it's just the way I'm reading it.

Not fair! You have such beautiful models right in the family!

Great shots as usual Lisa!

Oddly enough, my favorite is #4 ... I usually like eye contact, but in that one, the idea of being followed rings so strongly.

This location looks EXACTLY like the P-pine forest south of Flagstaff I elk hunted in 20+ years ago ....
Beautiful images.

gorgeous as always, Lisa! I really wish someone would do a primer or video on taking photos directly into the sun and still getting such good detail on the subject. I like the style a lot but have no clue how to do it. B

Thank you, guys! @Tom - Ironically, we were in the forest just east of Flag - so same type of landscape - Garland Prairie Rd. I think?

Stunning set. I like them all but there is just something about the B&W image that makes it stand out for me.

Excellent photos as always. first and last are my favorites. The tree in 3 & 4 are too distracting to my eye and takes away from the overall scene and model.

Great set, Lisa. I love how you are unafraid to put the subject smack-dab in the middle of the frame, I'm always draw to that approach. I don't find it static at all -- very dynamic if done right. Congrats!

My favorites are the first and last shots here. Very J.R.R. Tolkien in its otherworldly, mysterious beauty.
